Pink + Purple = Pinkle!

Instagram user @mkl_stylist wowed us with this gorgeous multi-dimensional color creation. We had to get the low-down asap, because as you all know, jaw-dropping color is always in.


STEP ONE: Pre-lighten the hair to level 8/9, using back to back foils with 1/4in sections.

STEP TWO: Cleanse, condition and dry completely.

STEP THREE: Using Pravana Vivids Violet & Magenta, in two separate bowls, apply foils back to back. Alternate between the violet and magenta shade. Process for 20 minutes without heat.


STEP ONE: Prep with Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave In Treatment.

STEP TWO: Blow dry with flat brush until 90 percent dry and apply Agave healing oil treatment (just a few drops).

STEP THREE: Use a round brush to smooth flyaways and shape the ends.

STEP FOUR: Finish with Alterna Bamboo Smooth Hairspray.
